Welcome to the Dollhouse

An intriguing and arresting dark comedy (1995) from American independent writer-director Todd Solondz, who focuses on an 11-year-old misfit in New Jersey but refuses to sentimentalize her. It's worth pondering whether Solondz goes out of his way to pile on her miseries, but this isn't as obvious a skewering of what it means to be American, adolescent, and unloved as it may first appear; it's also about the interactions of a twisted world we all live in. Winner of the grand jury prize at the Sundance film festival; with Heather Matarazzo, Victoria Davis, Christina Brucato, and Brendan Sexton Jr.
